Hi,

What's the difference between pausing a <video> and invoking 
MediaStreamTrack.enabled = false?

I read that in the former case, the audio gets paused too whereas in the 
latter case it does not but what are the other differences?
In both cases, does the network streaming actually stop? Or is streaming 
still taking place but not being rendered?

The specification document doesn't seem to address this.

Thanks,
Gili
